Mercury Aspects

Mercury represents our rational mind and is the planet of everyday expression and communication. It signifies our curiosity and what areas of life we find mentally appealing and stimulating. It analyzes and organises and defines the way we interact with others. Mercury in your chart reveals how you get your point across and in what style.

Mercury Sesquiquadrate Ascendant


Although you have a sharp mind, you often feel some confusion when it comes to expressing yourself, for you are uncertain whether to do what comes naturally to you, or to adopt a more logical approach. The expectations of others weigh heavily on your shoulders, and you sense that by following them you will be assured a better reception.
You may be, to some extent, right about that, but be sure that in following convention you don’t end up forgetting about you own uniqueness. You have a strong creative intelligence and, when comfortable, a way with words that can win over many an interlocutor.
With experience you will learn a better sense of balance between convention and the self, knowing when it is better to be logical, and when it is better to rely upon your native wits in a given situation, and you will then feel rather more comfortable in your own skin.
With your active mind, you need cognitively demanding work in order to thrive in this world. You’re an ideas person, and with the right mindset are good at communicating those ideas or the ideas of others.
Sometimes you need to be more empathetic with those you’re communicating with, as you have a tendency to tease a little too sharply, with a bit too much bite. Remember that not everyone has thick skin.
Disagreements with others don’t have to be personal or destructive, and, in fact, with good listening and a friendly give-and-take, they can be profoundly constructive, a dialectical spur for the creation of new ideas you’ll go on to express in the future.^^
